Sundown Botswana

This is a classic, almost archetypal 'Africa' image of what my old professor liked to call a "kitschy African sunset," complete with silhouetted acacias (I think an A. erioloba) and glowing dry grass. This one comes from Central Kalahari Game Reserve, which is the second largest game reserve on the planet, covering 52,800 km² of savanna. This image was a bit of a struggle because I was shooting out the side of our safari vehicle as we rushed to get to our campsite before the sundown curfew. The fact that this is a sundown image perhaps gives a sense of the urgency.
